In the world of Cinematography, Television and New Media, amazing developments have taken place and today’s students have a better understanding of how technology has played its part in their daily lives. That is why a day exploring the National Media Museum is a must for students of Film and Media Studies, Design and Technology and ICT.

Situated in the heart of Bradford, UNESCO City of Film, the Museum’s aim is to be the best museum in world for inspiring people to learn about, engage with and create media.  There are seven floors of traditional and interactive galleries to investigate the science and technology behind TV, film and photography.  There are two gallery spaces that display a changing programme of exhibitions and also a fully functioning IMAX theatre, which was the first to open in the UK.

 Cultural and educational events, workshops and activities bring the Museum to life for schools, colleges and universities by allowing them to focus on their specific areas of interest. Carefully designed galleries are packed with fascinating objects and interactive exhibitions to help students engage with media.  The Animation Gallery and the Games Lounge are popular with students who enjoy a more hands on experience.

The workshops were created to run practical and inspiring sessions led by media professionals.  This will give your students first-hand experience of creating their own media product. For students considering a career in TV, Film or Media this is the perfect platform to engage their interest.  For all other subject areas the Museum provides a motivating environment in which to study outside the classroom.

In addition to the subjects already mentioned the Museum also runs sessions that incorporate Science, History and Mathematics.  For further information give our Educational Specialist a call to discuss the many options available and remember all tours are tailor-made to suit the needs of the students.
